The theme of this Arena, is the Zephyr, a culmination of Dwayna and Lyssa and a new season of competition. The birth of the “Prestige,” our elite group of adventurers who will be taking on new obstacles, monsters, challenges and each other!

The first event of the year will be looking to show-case as well as scout for new members to join the Prestige. The prize for entering and winning a round is 30 gold pieces to each contestant!

We hope to see you all there to cheer on the competitors.

Being a Guest in the Arena

When you enter into the Arena, you are also agreeing to the decisions made by the Host of the event. What they say, goes. The Host rarely ever part-takes in combat, acting as a game master to direct the event and resolve emotes in the Arena.

(If you would like to apply to be a Host (or game master) get in touch!)

Guests character differences;
• We give significantly better stats to Guests over Prestige members.
• Guests do not have the complex mechanics of a signature “stunt” or points to spend.
• Guests are not able to get permanent physical consequences participating. However, this means they can’t continue fighting once their threshold of repairable damage is gone.



You might ask why is this?

Once inside the Prestige, by attending routine training and becoming part of the group, characters are given signature moves and points used to compel other characters, even pick up injuries with penalties to their character.

The guests simplified version allows them to participate without worrying about getting hurt, or complicated mechanics.



How Combat Works?

Characters are allow to emote their attack however they wish in a turn-based order – there is no limit on the imagination or style you can bring to this. The targeted character produces a defending emote, if it is a creature in the ring the Host will do that.

After both sets of emote the host roles in the background to resolve the point score and produces an line resolving the outcome. Then it moves to the next person in the turn order, so on and so fourth.

Guest characters have three HP chunks for absorbing hits (totalling 6 points). After that, they are allowed to concede.


If in doubt, the Host will be more than willing to guide you through it on discord voice or in party chat! We have experience helping and training brand new players so it shouldn’t be trouble.

Just dropping a little reminder here to keep responses constructive and respectful - it's okay not to like the way someone is running an event, but focus on discussing solutions instead of slamming one another.
BEHIND ONE, THERE ARE MANY.

Thanks to all those who came to spectate and take part!

We saw a 3 team fight against a terrifying creature from the depths! (A great choice by two members of the crowd) A clash of dagger and sword between two competitors with something to prove from the New Year games. Then an open competitor getting to sink their claws into the Champion of the Prestige.

Till next time.
